Here are 3 of our top tips for making one of the famous Big Daddy Swags even more comfortable than they already are:

First up, get your hands on one of the Adventure Kings queen size self-inflating mattresses. At a huge 100mm thick it is double the thickness of the original 50mm mattress in your Big Daddy swag, and 30% thicker than the mattress in a Big Daddy Deluxe. People love these mattresses because they’re a perfect fit, make camping more comfy, and they’re just as handy to use at home as a spare bed when guests visit. This is an accessory you’ll use way more than you think. In the cold a thicker mattress (especially a foam cored inflatable like this) will also add stacks of insulation meaning you are less likely to get the 2am shivers from the cold ground stealing your body warmth.


Secondly, we recommend getting your hands on a good sleeping bag. You can certainly get by with your doona from home, but a good sleeping bag like the Adventure Kings Premium Sleeping Bag, will take your comfort levels up a notch. It easily traps your body heat and keeps you toasty. The cinching hood and zipper baffle gives you the coziest nights sleep even when there is frost all around, or with the removable flannel lining you can cool it down for summer camping without needing to hang a leg out! As an added benefit when you get 2 Kings premium sleeping bags (left and right handed) they can be zipped together to make a larger double sized sleeping bag, perfect for partners and small families sharing the massive sleeping space in a Kings Big Daddy Swag.


Finally, don’t forget to season your swag. This is a simple procedure required on most canvas products and in the process,even those that come pre-seasoned like the Big Daddy’s.


All you need to do to season your Big Daddy is set it up in the yard, remove the mattress, and hit it with the garden hose or a bucket of water. Your goal is to soak the canvas material and the threads in the stitching, making sure to focus your attention on getting the canvas wet. This simple process swells the thread in the stitching holes and tightens all the seams. Allow it to dry fully and then return the mattress, pack it away and you are ready for your next camping trip!


Following these top tips will get you the best night’s sleep you’ve ever had at camp, rain hail or shine, and will make sure your trip is just like you planned it, relaxing and hassle-free!
